Why Lynne Johnson-Harris chose Poland Springs

We purchased our home in 1998 with every intention of living there until we retired and then becoming 'snow birds'. Jobs changed and we were transferred, however, we couldn't let go of our beautiful retreat. We have recently made some enhancements to our home to include satellite TV and WI-FI internet. So, we invite you to relax and enjoy our Maine Lake Retreat on Middle Range Pond as we do every time we go to our home.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit is the solitude. You feel like you are the only one around with the loons.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5
We came to Maine for a family wedding and traveling with an infant and 8 family members so we decided to rent a house. Lucky for us we found this one because it exceeded all of our expectations. We enjoyed every minute we stayed there and we wished we could have stayed for longer. The house is beautiful with amazing views of the lake and they even have a canoe for you to use. We hope to be able to come back when it is warm enough to jump in the water. The owners were wonderful and quickly responded to all questions and the house had everything we needed including directions to LL Bean and a pack n play for my son.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our vacation here. The home is absolutely beautiful and had plenty of space for our family of 5. The home is located on a peninsula on Middle Range Pond, which is a very clean and pristine lake perfect for swimming. The property is beautifully maintained and very private. The views from the home were incredible, especially from the master bedroom looking over the lake in the morning. And Middle Range Pond is home to many loons, filling day and night with beautiful sounds. The property manager was always available if needed, and the owners were very accommodating. The entire experience exceeded our expectations, and we can't wait for our next visit. It was easily our best Maine vacation ever, and highly recommended. Thank you!

Owner's Response: The loons singing in the morning is one of the most amazing sounds to hear. We enjoy every minute of their chorus. We look forward to having you back to take it all in again.

Maine respite

  • 5 of 5
My family of four have vacationed in Maine several times but have never felt as welcomed, relaxed and cared for as we did during our week long stay at MRP. This home surpassed the description and our expectations. I slept better in the main floor bed than I do at home! We needed nothing as everything one could want or need was provided for us including information printed out. The total quiet, topped off with the privacy and solitude, was punctuated by the singing loons. The drive to Freeport was easy and worth the trip as the town was not crowded as it can be in high summer. We also went to Portland for a day and loved the quick ferry ride to Peaks Island where we toured by taxi. People were very friendly and helpful. We wanted to stay another week but real life called us back home. I believe we will return to Middle Range Pond and retreat from the hectic pace so diferent from the Maine we know in this home. Thank you!

Perfection on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us head up to Maine every spring and this year it was my turn to find the lodgings. I honestly thought that this property had to be too-good-to-be-true. I was wrong. With incredible views, enough room to sleep eight comfortably, and a beautifully appointed kitchen, this house could not have been any better. It is secluded, yet not far out of the way and the grounds are spectacular. The owner and the caretaker were more than ready to see to everything we needed and answer any questions we had. It was a wonderful place, a sanctuary feel to it, that we will never forget. Hat water a plenty! Three full bathrooms! Very comfortable beds and plenty of airflow! As for the beauty of the spot, the photographs do not do it justice. This is an idyllic spot and I encourage anyone going to Maine to do their best to secure this house. I was lovely for 8, but would be most perfect for a family of 4-6. Te owner supplies a binder full of every piece of info one would need. Absolutely nothing in this house or in the interest of the guest's convenience is overlooked. Enjoy! We hope to be back!

Fabulous Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented this wonderful house for Bates College graduation and could not have been happier.
The house is beautiful and has everything you need, the owner and caretaker were amazing to work with. The lights were on when we arrived late at night, such a nice touch.
Fun day trips and so much to see and do. We will definitely go back

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five, with three kids ranging from 8-14, stayed for two weeks at this lovely house, surrounded on three sides by water. This is an away-from-it-all location that requires a 20 minute drive to the nearest grocery store (or the nearest New York Times), but who cares when the place is so great? The house is very well maintained and clean and the small kitchen is well equipped. The furnishings are nice the grounds are beautifully maintained. It's great to have a large flat grassy space, too, which our kids used to play lawn games when they weren't fishing, swimming or asking if they could watch TV (NO!). Really nice, large dining room table. Bathrooms were clean and worked well and the laundry is in the master bedroom off the kitchen, which was a huge convenience.
The lake was delightful for swimming and on one particularly beautiful day four of us spent 5 hours on the swim float, staying out there right through (and forgetting about) lunch. We used the canoe and 5-person paddle boat, and rented kayaks. This is a great boating lake.
Whenever we had a question or issue we were easily able to get it resolved by the wonderful caretaker for the house, who was as charming as he is responsive (along with his lovely family).
We quickly retreated from our city-living ways and found that driving 15 minutes for ice cream in Raymond was a piece of cake and worth the drive (at The Mosquito). It's 30 minutes to a great watersports rental place on Long Lake in Naples, and just 45 minutes to Freeport. Once you've done that, you don't want to do anything except sit on a comfortable lawn chair and look at the view. I suppose if you're into this sort of thing, it would be good to know that it's also 20 minutes from the new casino in the area. As for restaurants, we never went further than Cindy's Dockside, at the other end of the same lake, 5 minutes from the house. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent lobster, hamburgers and sweet potato fries!
We miss it and can't wait to go back!
